Another month is over, and I can hardly believe it! Thanks to my summer classes, July flew by. I spent the second half catching up on War and Peace for Jillian’s readalong — I’m now just a month and a half behind instead of almost five. Because of that, I didn’t get as much other reading done as I’d have liked, but it was still a very good reading month.

Here’s what my July looked like:


Looking Back: July

Total books read: 4
Total pages read: 1,468
Favorite book: Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell, which is rather unfair to the rest of the books because I adored Cloud Atlas!
Least favorite book: I think probably The Awakening by Kate Chopin, but not by much


Total audiobooks listened to: 4
Total hours listened: 48 hours, 15 minutes
Favorite audiobook: His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik (read by Simon Vance) — thank goodness there are five more in the series and a sixth on the way!
Least favorite audiobook: Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann

That was my July. How was yours?

  1. Oh, I can’t wait to read Cloud Atlas! I have had it on my shelf for a few years now, and I have heard so many good things about it. It sounds like a wonderful book, from what I know about it. Glad you loved it!

  2. Hi Erin, looks like you had a good month! I’ve had Brooklyn on my shelf for almost a year but still haven’t read it. Hope to change that in the next year.

    I have a question – are you reading War & Peace? I’m reading it – chapter a day. I went to check out the blog hosting the read along and it has been deleted. I don’t remember hearing anything about why Jillian was closing her blog. Did you? Just curious. I’ll keep reading 🙂
